i would of swore that i seen a post just like this last week...but here we go...the 250 is going to put you on your butt and probably hurt you being you have never been on one or never raced anything....but it will make the better trail bike,because it has a ton of bottom end torque and can be chuggalugged if needed:prof: you will need to make this decision,because you are the only one who knows your level of skills:thumbsup: the yz125 2006 and up are just awesome bikes and should not be overlooked no matter what you read or have someone tell you....hope this helps:ride:

i too saw this post before :cry:

no worries, ok here we go...

you sure you're goin for the races? if so, then i'd say take the YZ125. the 250 would be too much for you granting that you're 100% coming off from a TTR and you had no prior experience on production bikes. i weigh 152 lbs just like the way you are at the moment.

should you be reluctant about the 125 in trails, all you need is just add 2-3 teeth rear sprocket and off you go for a good time... personally, i prefer ONLY plus 2 teeth up in my rear, and this is based on my experience with an '03 blue 125 :banghead:

there is much more excitement, however, and a lot to gain if you find yourself an '06 and up YZ125... trust us on this :applause:

      Hey guys, I have a question. I go to Gorman, but they require green sticker to ride during the summer. I want to buy a newer bike, but can't take it there during summer. How does everyone who have red sticker bikes ride during the summer? Let me know where you guys go.

      Hey guys I live in Cali and I need green stickers to ride during summer. Not only that, but a spark arrestor is required. I just want to know something. Where can you ride without a sticker or spark arrestor? Maybe even on the streets?

      Hey guys I read an article saying that the 01 YZ125 has six gears. But other people are saying that it's 5. How many gears does it have? Just asking. Thanks.

      2006 YZ 250.. The manual calls for 10w30 (yamalube 4 stroke oil), can I use 10w50 (Motul semi sythetic 4 stroke oil) ??   I bought the bike, want to change the gear oil before I ride tomorrow but all I have at the moment is the Motul 10w50  semi synth.  Is that oil going to be too thick compared to the 10w30 or will it be fine..  Thanks

      Hey guys I just wanted to show off my bike and show it to the world lol  What is your opinion on it. God or bad, please be honest. I am open to all comments and suggestions. Any upgrades I should do to make it look better and/or faster?
